Sport Carnivals

Yowie Bay Public School holds a Swimming Carnival in Term 1 each year and an Athletics Carnival in Term 2. Our Cross Country Carnival is held at Miranda Park. All Years 3-6 children are expected to attend. Competitors must turn 8 years of age in the year of the event. Participation is optional for 8-year-old Year 2 children. From these events, children are selected to represent the school in zone carnivals. Children from zone carnivals are selected to take part in Sydney East area carnivals where selection can be gained to compete at state carnivals.

Sport Houses

All children in Kindergarten to Year 6 are placed in one of the four houses for sport. Children are to wear their House t-shirts to the sports carnivals. Each grade is allocated a sport day where children are required to wear their complete sports uniform. On days where children participate in the school’s fitness program, they are required to bring their sport shoes to change into for the duration of the activity.

PSSA - Primary School Sports Association

Children in Years 3 to 6 have the opportunity to trial to represent the school in sports competitions in a variety of sports. PSSA Sport is held on Friday during school time and requires children to travel to sporting venues by bus. Parents are most welcome to attend as spectators, provided they adhere to the Cronulla Zone PSSA Parents’ Code of Conduct.

Premier’s Sporting Challenge

The Premier’s Sporting Challenge encourages children to be more active. Children from K-6 must complete 10 weeks of physical activity in order to qualify for a Premier’s Sporting Challenge Bronze, Silver, Gold or Diamond Award.
